Zucchini Cakes

We love zucchini, especially in the summer months when it is nice and fresh.  So I have found several different recipes for zucchini.  Now there are many ways to cook zucchini that are completely carb free and this is not one of them. That said, it is not a high carb option either and it offers a different way to enjoy your zucchini.  I usually pair this with corn on the cob instead of a potato and pasta to keep the total carbs for the meal in a wonderful range.
